Hey team. Currently I’m using two 315cmh’s as my main lighting, and I have 2“600 watt” burple LED’s that is about two years old. They weren’t cheap, they were about 320 bucks each and have Cree LED’s. 
Anyway, I’m not a big fan of these LED’s except for veg to keep plants short. Generally they are a disappointment for flowering and also have had lots of LED’s either blink on - off or die altogether. 
Anyway, I need more light to pick my yields up. I’m considering a new generation full spectrum LED or go old school with a 600W HPS. For LED’s I’m considering Spider Farmer with Samsung LED’s. Specifically a SF-2000.

Anyone use these lamps? All feedback appreciated.

Im also looking at replacing a 600w hps/mh setup, iv been looking at the mars hydro SP250 and TS2000 in particular as they seem to perform very good in the tests iv seen and reviews iv read, they are very cheap thats the main thing with em i quess but they seem to perform almost as good as very expensive lights so its worth looking into

Ther are a lot of good choices out there now mate. The future is these quantum board style lights. I haven't seen what Mars Hydro can do yer, but we all get to see that soon 😉

But i have seen what Invisible sun can do first hand, and I am very impressed. Been growing a long time, but my last grow, with the ISH 480, was some of the densest buds iver ever grown. Pure quality. Plants structure was much better and the plants loved the light. 

They might seem expensive, but compared to other QB style lights, they are cheap! Worth every penny man. Quality light mate

Im not sure what the ISH runs $  but I use 4 of the TS1000 to cover A 4x4 @ $130 each  $520 total, I am very happy with the Marshydro TS series lights but im not sure they are cheaper than your light that covers that area by it self.

I'll be using the Spider Farmer 1000 for my Jack Herrer Grow. Did lots of research and bit the bullet, my plan is to get another one for flower time if I like it, if not I'll get a Mars as I can't afford HLGs.

We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds

$520 total

TBF the ISH 480 is not far off that. I like we have wide variety of lighting in this grow off! We get to see how they all compare with each other!

I was running the CMH315 plus 2 ts1000's this grow but if you would like i can switch back to all TS1000's and put the CMH in my other tent so itll be more comparable. Let me know its no problem to do so

So have I.  The only downside I've heard they aren't the best for flowering but that's from a 1000w hps guy so ?.

Will NEED a 315 watt LEC substitute in the very near future.  At $362 CND +taxes (free delivery) from Amazon the price is definitely appealing.  I just dont want it to be disappointed and in the same situation $400 poorer.

Please keep us updated
